The Doctors favorite word...

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

RUN. Oh gosh. Running. I walked with my daughter to the park again today. My legs are already sore from yesterday, and I had already done my morning workout. We got there, she played in the park area for a while, then decided she wanted to play in the "desert" (aka the football field that has no grass). Then once we were on the field, she decided she wanted to race.. so she had me sprinting back... and forth... and back.. and forth... and then doing tires.... and then back.. and forth... I tried to take a break and she was like "Can we race more? Please?" So... I ran more... and more... and she kept pushing me to run more. I was like oh my frick, this kid is my personal trainer! And all I could think of while I was running was Doctor Who. They run all the time, how the eff do they do it! Practice I guess, which apparently I'm getting lots of now. And by the way, why does no one tell you that running works your abs? I haven't done any ab workouts, but after yesterday and today, they are stiff! And I'm certain my legs are going to detach themselves. Goodness! With all this exercise, I better be dropping weight like there's no tomorrow, lol!! Except.. there is a tomorrow. And I'm sure it will involve an obscene amount of running. I'm okay with it though, I've always wanted to be a runner.

Happy hump day!

    I need to get moving more! I try to run,but it hurts my shins. So I think I am going to power walk for now and see what happens. We can do this!

    Heck, why pay for a work out video?? Just chase your daughter and do what she does! I don't know how they are so full of energy! lol

    I worked out last night- I ended up just doing the treadmill (I decided that it would be better to ease back into everything rather than just jump right in where I had left off) and I'm sore all over today! My legs, abs, arms/shoulders, haha I'm glad that you kept going and didn't stop! I think that kids are better at pushing us than we are for ourselves because they throw that cute factor into the mix and you just can't say no!

Kids are so great because they don't even know what they're doing is exercise. It's just fun. That's how it should be.

Side note: When I ran my first half in October, my children held up a sign quoting Donna. "Seriously. There's an outrageous amount of running involved." I laughed so hard I almost had to stop running.

    Haha... for a second I was going to guess Allons-y or Geronimo! That kid is going to turn you into an avid runner.

    I love running! My 4 year old is my trainer. We have a paved trail near us and his favorite thing to do is get on the trail and run the two miles to the duck pond. If I ever manage to match his speed and energy I'm sure I'll drop the rest of my weight pretty quickly!
My aunt and I used to joke that we should just follow my kids around all day and do exactly what they did. We would be fit and skinny in no time!

    I'll bet you can't wait for all that dashing around to be reflected on the scale. :)

Have fun with the running thing. I'm finding it difficult to keep going for more than a bit at a time, certainly nothing like the hours you seem to be putting in, chasing after your daughter.

    I've thought the same thing! How do all his companions run everywhere. Surely all of them can't be in top shape. That's awesome though, keep it up! Sounds like having a kid saves you money on gym memberships. emoticon
